Diawara fined for driving without licence

MARSEILLE - Olympique Marseille defender Souleymane Diawara was fined 4,500 euros ($5,500) on Tuesday for driving without a licence, a justice spokesman said.

The Senegalese international was also banned from taking his driving test again for at least a year.

Diawara was arrested and detained for a few hours last September for driving in the centre of Marseille after his driving licence had been revoked because he had built up too many penalty points.
